Abstract

We studied 131 patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) to determine the relationship between the presence of anti-Ro antibody in these patients and specific manifestations of SLE. There was a significant correlation between anti-Ro and photosensitivity rash in SLE patients, regardless of the type of rash. No significant association was found between anti-Ro and other SLE criteria or between anti-Ro and demographic variables.
